For the Greek, Hemeroscopium is the spot where the sun sets. A mention to a spot that exists just in our psyche, in our faculties, that is perpetually changing and alterable, however is in any case genuine. It is delimited by the references of the skyline, by as far as possible, characterized by light, and it happens in time.
Hemeroscopium house traps, a local space, and a far off skyline. Also, it does as such playing an amusement with structures set in inapparently precarious parity, that encase the living spaces permitting the vision to get away. Overwhelming structures and huge activities are arranged in an approach to incite gravity to move the space. Also, along these lines the spot is characterized.
The request in which these structures are heaped up creates a helix that sets out from a steady bolster, the mother bar, and grows upwards in a succession of components that get to be lighter as the structure develops, shutting on a point that comes full circle the arrangement of harmony. Seven components altogether. The outline of their joints react to their valuable nature, to their strengths; and their hassles express the auxiliary condition they have.
By the way this structure is set, the house gets to be elevated, light, straightforward, and the space kept inside streams with life. The clear straightforwardness of the structure’s joints required actually the advancement of complex estimations, because of the fortification, and the pre-pressure and post-strain of the steel bars that sew the web of the bars.
It took us a year to design however just seven days to fabricate the structure, on account of an aggregate construction of the distinctive components and a flawlessly planned cadence of gathering. The greater part of our exertion arranged to build up the system that would permit making a particular space. Furthermore, along these lines, another bewildering dialect is designed, where structure vanishes offering path to the stripped space. Hemeroscopium house emerges the crest of its harmony with what in Ensamble Studio we unexpectedly call the “G point”, a twenty ton rock stone, articulation of the power of gravity and a physical stabilizer to the entire structure.
